Ladder Accidents, Ladder Lawsuits and Serious Injuries.

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

When someone is involved in a ladder accident or a fall from a ladder it often results in serious injuries.  What many people do not realize is that these types of construction accidents are the result of someone elses fault, usually the general contractor or sub-contractors.

New York ladder accident law is complex in New York.  The safety laws and guidelines are promulgated by OSHA and the various labor laws.  Workers Compensation laws come into play when someone is seriously injured in a ladder accident in New York.  Usually, the injuries in a ladder fall or ladder accident are fractured or broken bones, head, neck and back injuries, spinal cord damage and even paralysis.

It is critical that you speak to a lawyer who is familiar with New York’s labor laws, OSHA regulations and the various rules and regulations that pertain to the construction industry.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a ladder accident or ladder fall in New York call the Ladder Accident Lawyers at 1(800)WE-FIGHT for a free consultation.  Even if you do not believe anyone was at fault, call us to learn about your rights as a third party (such as the ladder manufacturer, designer, contractor or sub-contractor) may be liable.

Defective Guardrails. Defective Guardrail Lawsuit.

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

One may think that a guardrail cannot be defective.  However, that thought is false.  A guardrail can be defective in the following ways:

1) Design defect of the guardrail; 2) manufacturers defect of the guardrail; 3) incorrect installation of the guardrail; 4) faulty guardrail maintenance; and 5) negligent or shoddy guardrail repairs.

The purpose of a guardrail is obvious.  But, what most people do not know is that a guardrail must react to a collision in a specific way.  If someone is involved in an accident on the road involving a guardrail and that accident was catastrophic in nature, the accident many times could have or should have been minor if it wasn’t for the guardrail.

The key to successfully litigating a defective guardrail case is to follow up with an attorney immediately so that the proper photographs and investigation of the guardrail can be conducted by your lawyers experts.

If you or a loved one were involved in an accident and a guardrail was hit please call the Guardrail Lawyers at 1(800)WE-FIGHT for a free consultation.  No fee unless we win your case.  We have convenient locations all over New York.  Hospital and home visits are available.

McDonald’s Hot Coffee Lawsuit

Saturday, January 5th, 2008

The infamous McDonald’s Hot Coffee Lawsuit is an interesting case study on the success of the insurance company industry in manipulating the American public.

The insurance companies will have you believe that it is ridiculous that someone should get a million dollars for getting burned with coffee from their restaurant.  However, what they fail to publicize is that the woman’s labia was burned off and that they were warned that their coffee was too hot.

Of course coffee is supposed to be hot, but there is a line that must not be crossed when it comes to the temperature of a beverage.  The issue at that time was the coffee was sitting in a machine and being continuously heated all day.  The temperature of the coffee was beyond drinkable.  One can imagine what coffee that temperature would do when it comes into contact with human skin.  McDonalds million dollar payout resulted in them getting off easy as far I am concerned.

The american public needs to understand that if the insurance companies are successful with their relentless attacks and tort reform agenda our rights as we know them will be changed forever. 

Imagine you get into a car accident and you are parlyzed.  It will cost millions of dollars in lifetime care if you are in your twenties, thirties or even forties.  The insurance companies want to limit the amount of award you can obtain from a jury.  It is despicable and they must be stopped.  You, the consumer, have the power.

If you or a loved one was injured by hot coffee call the aggressive, caring New York attorneys at 1(800)WE-FIGHT for a free consultation and learn about your rights (while you still have rights).
